Re: Jump rope

Used to do it a lot. I used a classic leather boxer's rope for close to 15 years before it broke, now I have a Boa 2000 I very infrequently use. I don't particularly like it, but the leather rope I got to replace my old one is significantly different than my old one was. When I start to do it again,...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

Also, interesting.

"Slow" twitch fibers doesn't refer to the speed of contraction. It refers to more how rapidly it runs out of fuel.

Ergo there is far more benefit in training the slow twitch fibers to be stronger than there is the fast twitch fibers to burn more fat.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

McCallum's advice was overly influenced in his later writing by Art Joneses nonsense.

As far as his squatting advice, almost nobody needs to spend that much time banging out high rep breathing squats.

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

Generally I’d find this to be a huge red flag, but one of Pavel’s idiosyncrasies is he’s reflexively super-private even about matters that are irrelevant. Stop being a tip licker.

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

There are some things that indicate Pavel's university training was probably more in dance than in sports science, I think this is what either Maxwell, DuCane, or Cotter asserted after they all fell out. I don't remember who said it but it makes a lot of sense. It makes sense. Pavel's first two prod...

What the 'on the toes' style of running does is shift stresses. But his break in running program, which ...

Re: Home gym thoughts

I don't even know if you need plywood.

1 horse stall mat is enough to lift on.
2 horse stall mats lengthwise will give you padding for your rack and probably a place to deadlift from.

Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

The SF/HS style of kb work leaves a lot of grip endurance on the table.

If there is a real 'functional strength' it has to do with the strength, endurance and resilience of the hands. Long set styles of lifting build a ferocious grip endurance.

Re: H-town flood

Yeah. No worries.

Other folks aren't as lucking. Imelda caught everyone off guard as it'd moved north and east a bit, then some bands of rain came around and just dumped a bunch of water.

Not as bad as Harvey, and a lot drained quickly but still quite a bit of floodign.
